Subject: Yes, I enjoyed listing to the shows, but...
Bogie is not the best radio actor I have ever heard. The scripts are pretty good, the shows have a good pace, Humphrey sometimes seems to be just reading, going through the motions just to make a paycheck, especially in the first few episodes

I'm glad Bogie finally agreed to do a radio show. He and Bacall were definitely a great team and it comes through in this show.

I find myself at fault for finding some of the plots predictable, but at the time I assume they were more fresh than they would be today.

Bogie's Slate Shannon is one tough SoB who only gets knocked out when its convenient for the plot. Bacall's Sailor Duvall is always ready with some quick wit or sarcastic slap of words.

Definitely worth many hours of listening! Enjoy!

They're all pretty much alike, and are all a lot of fun to listen to. B & B just fit together perfectly.

What a great series with Bogart and Bacall. Great characters. It is like taking their movies "To have and have Not" and combining it with the backdrop of "Key Largo". Bogey owns a boat and hotel in Havana and Bacall is his young ward...Hollywood was always making a big deal of their age difference and this series is really an homage to "Bogey and Baby". Great lines and repartee between the two. Thanks to the original uploader for this classic that everyone should download!
